Of Mice and Men Essay (Help!)

posted by Victoria

Write a 5 paragraph essay that explains how George tries to take responsibility for taking care of Lennie but fails.

I know I need to come up with a thesis statement first, but I am not sure how to do so with this kind of prompt.

I'm taking a wild chance here, but how does this thesis sound?

Thesis: George attempts to take responsibility for taking care of Lennie by looking out for Lennie whenever he was on the verge of trouble but fails when Lennie kills Curely's wife.

    That's a restatement of the "prompt" or assignment. How and why does George fail? Or does he, finally, fail at all? Let me ask if George's final act is actually to protect Lennie in a final and permanent way?
